Why become a Union Electrical Worker?

Imagine a world where you earn while you learn. A world that allows you to earn a salary for 5 years while receiving FREE college credits.   That world is here now at the IBEW/NECA Training Center. This is the apprenticeship and education center for the members of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 82.  IBEW local site: http://www.ibew82.org  NECA local site: www.wocneca.org

  • Earn while you learn

Why pay high tuition costs when you can earn while you learn! Apprentices start earning a livable wage as soon as they start working. They receive pay advancements throughout their apprenticeship.

  • Great employment opportunities

The industry employs over 650,000 electrical workers and 70,000 electrical contracting firms and produces an annual volume of over $95 billion.

  • State-of-the-art training

Our goal is to provide the highest quality training in the electrical industry. Apprentices are provided trade related classroom training that produces competency and pride that lead to true craftsmanship. And, Union programs graduate about three times as many apprentices to journeyman status as do non-union programs.

  • Equal opportunity for all

Enrollment of minorities in union apprentice programs is about three times the number enrolled in non-union programs, and there are four times as many women enrolled in union training. Graduation rates of minorities and women from union apprentice programs is three times that of non-union programs. The all-trades graduation rate for union apprentice programs was 82.2 percent, compared with 17.8 percent for non-union programs.
